What/how to reinforce a 1966 mustang for a 2010 modular 302

I have a 1966 mustang coupe and I honestly have no idea what needs to be reinforced or replaced in order to get a smooth comfortable ride without the risk of twisting or bending the car because of the S/C 2010 302 modular I want to put in it. Anything help would be appreciated thanks.

I am thinking of this suspension for the front:

RC-107-PS Mustang Rod & Custom Rack And Pinion/Disc Brake Conversion Kit With Tubular Coilover A-Arm System Power Steering 1965-1973 | CJ Pony Parts

And this for the rear:

RCCK Mustang Rear Coil Over Conversion Kit 8" 1965-1970 | CJ Pony Parts

Thoughts?

Monte carlo bar, torque boxes, check out mustangs plus chassis stiffening kit and of course subframe connectors. Also a full roll cage will stiffen it alot.
